Mytha Hotel Anthology

International

Mytha Hotel Anthology is a unique collection of extraordinary properties located in the Mediterranean basin.  The group comprises seven hotels in Italy, Spain, Turkey and Croatia and was launched in December 2016 by Doğus Group.  Each property is distinctive but they are all are tied together by the eternal spirit of the Mediterranean, by which they are all inspired.

Mytha Hotel Anthology takes its roots from the concept of Myth – from the origins and cradle of civilization. Anthology refers to a collection of writings or poems – this refers to the unique collection of hotels that has been grouped together to create the Mytha Hotel Anthology.  The philosophy of the collection, ‘Mediterranean Taste of Time’, encapsulates the blossoming affinity between the flow of moments, seasons and ages of the Mediterranean with the aim to create culturally rich experiences in each destination.

The one-of-a-kind hotels are united by their extraordinary histories as well as their exceptional locations.  They all share a strong Mediterranean character and charm and are linked together by their exceptional cuisine – often Michelin starred, spectacular art and design, expert spas using the more innovative products and equipment, exquisite attention to detail and thoughtful, friendly Mediterranean service.

Hotel Esencia

The Caribbean & Americas

Art meets the beach at this chic aristocratic bolt hole on the Riviera Maya. Originally built as the private hideaway home of an Italian duchess on what is considered the most beautiful beach on Mexico’s Caribbean coast, the 31 room, suite and villa Hotel Esencia is located on a private 50 acre estate surrounded by the Mayan jungle. Under the new ownership of American entrepreneur Kevin Wendle and fresh from a major refurbishment, Hotel Esencia is the perfect blend of European and local influences. Since taking over, Wendle’s aim has been to update the hotel, accentuate its natural beauty as well as add a truly one-off collection of art and antiques including artwork by celebrated Spanish and Latin American artists including works by Pablo Picasso, Fernando Botero and Eduardo Santiere. There are Pierre Jeanneret chairs as well as lamps by Serge Mouille and Pierre Guariche. Hotel Ecencia’s beach, Xpu-Ha, is considered the finest on this 180km stretch of Caribbean coastline. There are also two restaurants, a new beach bar, two large pools, juice bar and organic spa. Each room and suite boasts a private terrace and seating area with views of either the luxuriant gardens or the Caribbean sea.

Nihi Sumba Island

Asia, Australasia & The Indian Subcontinent

Travel & Leisure magazine #1 hotel in the world 2016 and 2017

Nihi Sumba Island is an intimate island retreat of only 28 villas on 560 hectares and 2.5 km of pristine beach on the little known and beautifully preserved Indonesian island of Sumba. The island is located 250 miles southeast of Bali and although only an hour away by air, it remains undiscovered by mass tourism. It’s a magically pristine land of gorgeous beaches, tropical scenery and a fascinating tribal culture. Owned and managed by friends Chris Burch and James McBride, Nihi Sumba Island was borne out of a vision to protect and preserve the unique culture of Sumba and empower the local communities to support themselves and their families through The Sumba Foundation. The property has been left almost entirely in its wild natural state with only 10% of the land developed to accommodate the resort’s villas which are rustically luxurious and combine Sumbanese craftsmanship with private pools and personal butlers. At Nio Beach Club, a state of the art resort lap pool boasts epic views of the expansive beach and fronts one of the world’s great surfing waves, Occy’s Left. Other activities include the best sport fishing in Indonesia, hiking through beautiful landscapes to dramatic waterfalls, ancient villages and butterfly trails and stand-up paddling down the Wanukaka River. For the ultimate spa experience, enjoy a Nio Oka Spa Safari where after an early morning trek and healthy breakfast you can enjoy a day of unlimited spa treatments in a private cliff top pavilion overlooking the bluest of oceans.
